2017 Scholarship Winner

Celebrating 26 years of helping students achieve their educational goals, the George E. Allen Academic Scholarship was created to honor the firm's founder, George E. Allen, Sr., who overcame significant hardship to put himself through college and law school.

“There is one great, one simple principle which, if firmly laid hold of as the central principle in one’s life, will make that life a grand success, truly great and genuinely happy, loved and blessed in just the degree to which this principle is laid hold upon. The principle referred to is that we find our lives in spending them in service of others. The more of our lives we give to others, the fuller and the richer, the greater and the grander, the more beautiful and more happy our own lives become.” ~ George E. Allen, Sr., The Law as a Way of Life
